The New School

Masters of Science , Urban Policy and Analysis


University of Arizona

Bachelors of Art, Political Science, Gender and Women's Studies

The University of Arizona may be seen as a big ol' party school but those red brick buildings and year round sunshine were the perfect place to learn and play. I see the UofA as preparation for life, you have to know how to manage your time (between studying and sunning), be gregarious if you want to stand out in the crowd, and never be afraid to ask for help and make bold connections with professors if you're planning to pass the difficult classes or get their help in the future.
